obama and mitt romney set to deliver their final arguments to battleground voters after a sandy sidebar as they both return to the complain trail. new polls confirm the race is simply too close to call. "the wall street journal"/nbc marist poll shows romney withor rather, obama with a six-point lead in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin and a two-point lead in pelonew hampshire. 78% of likely voters approve of his response while 44% view romney's reaction favorably. neither is speaking to politicize the tragedy. how could it affect the race? could it affect the race. >> in many ways it has. look, president obama in this time of tragedy has been able to really step into the role as commander in chief and as the leader in chief and in many ways one of mitt romney's top surrogates has provided an incredible amount of cover, that is the new jersey governor chris christie. president obama was up there. let's listen what christi had to say about the president and what the president had to say about the new jersey governor. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and
different ways but we see the independent voters leaning in romney's direction. >> sean: you and gallup, i watch you guys the most. we have battleground which i think is a credible poll. they have him up by five. it stayed that way for a while. do you see it going into election day? >> yes. the race changed after the if you are debate. president obama was ahead and 98% voters didn't change their mind but 2% switched in favor of homicidal. who is actually going to show up and vote is the question. our model suggests there will be 2% more democrats nationwide than republicans. that is not be quite as good as 2004. if that holds, it's going to be very close election, probably slight edge with governor romney. >> sean: independents, we keep looking at these numbers. that is grouch by seven or eight points, president obama won -- there is a 16-point swing in many of these polls. is that the difference? >> it is the difference. if you go to some of the battleground states, independents by definition are going to pick the winner of that state. that is huge. i think the other thing that not talked
add new republican voters you have a formula for success, at least for governor romney. now, we have to go state by state. this is an electoral college vote. do you see a scenario in which romney would win a popular voted and lose the electoral college? >> it is possible. i think for that to happen, romney would have to win the popular vote by less than one point. it could extend a little more than that. >> sean: let's go to florida. interesting poll i found because of the i-4 corridor is where the election is won. florida is pretty much in romney's column? >> it's likely romney. we have shown him up 2-5 points in the state. seniors are really unhappy with the president's healthcare law. that is big issue. romney should be okay there. still we classify as a toss-up but probably a toss-up most likely to move in romney's direction. >> essentially state. it's hard for romney to win the election without winning virginia. >> he is up by two and four in theirs, it's leaning toward romney? >> it's going in romney's direction. it's very close. again --, ohio is a place where i think more tha
, it was the drudge report, more voters are selecting romney on the machine in marion, ohio and it shows up obama. have you looked into these problems? are you concerned about 30 some days with voting in ohio? >> we have probably the most bipartisan, sophisticated count can operation that you can find in the country. there is always two republicans overlooking the shoulders of two democrats and vice versa. i think that we had planned for this. we are prepared to provide the security. the secretary of state has been on this but -- i don't know how they do n it in the other states. they watch one another like a hawk. frankly that is the way it ought to be. >> sean: let's talk -- look, according to every other person, we all know that no republican has made it to the white house without winning the great state of ohio will. you know the state as well as anybody. i was watching meet the press and you said with confidence you feel that the state has moved towards governor romney. short of the rasmussen poll, a lot of polls show the president is leading. why do you feel so confident? >> you have all ki
in governor romney's closing argument to voters. >> the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. and he is offering them change. he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >> it sure ain't change. but governor romney is good at changing on every position and doing anything to win. on the trail, he's trying to sound warm and cuddly. he's now taking a soft attack. the new york times quoting him on the trail as saying, democrats love america, too. gee, governor. thanks for that. but that soft attack apparently ends there. because behind the scenes, republicans are starting to go into their get ugly, to do anything to win this election. in miami, he's running a spanish language ad tieing president obama to fidel castro and hugo chavez. yes, venezuela dictator hugo chavez. that's apparently a-okay with mitt romney. [ speaking in spanish ] >> here's the transl

up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional point or two out of the few remaining undecided. host: the first call comes from frank in burke, virginia. caller: thank you to c-span. i want to talk about the balance in fairfax county, the most populous county in virginia. we have electronic and paper. they are outdated and they were supposed to have been disposed of five years ago. yet the options of paper or electronic when you go to vote. they're not
at 2008, but only led by three points with likely voters romney leads the likely voters by five points. he won bison overall. if you look at the same panorama, it's all over. >> bob: in reality, you talk about the final vote in 2008 versus a week left to go to vote. people who vote early. you have to separate absenteeism from early voting. two separate things. people who vote early are senior citizens and they normally do. >> andrea: who leads with senior citizens? mitt romney leads. >> bob: right. >> andrea: independent and women. 3-point turnout advantage this time around swayed ten points to -- >> bob: you are taking something on election day when they did the count and doing seven things out. >> andrea: same exact date. 'canes is a political roundup, can we get to eric? >> eric: obama campaign, my opinion is in shambles. look what david axelrod had to do this morning. >> i will come on morning jo and shave off my mustache for 440 year if we lose any of the three states. with we lose michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania you shave it off? >> on the show? >> yes. >> eric: just to pointose st
on the electoral college was showing obama at 290 and romney is 217. the crucial swing women voters in swing states, whose side are they going to come down on and why? game.s a ground i don't think the republican comments help the republican party in that way. at the same time, it's going to be about -- it's who do we trust? the ads i would like to see -- the grounds game the getting out the vote. >> that's right. whether this franken storm effects it -- i would like to see ads of doing dishes and taking care of my baby. that's what would win my vote. >> let's talk about what has moved some swing women. it was the first debate appearance from governor rick r. he was excellent. that evente gave a lot of swing voters permission to support romney someone who they now see as an alternative. >> that's right. no women's issues were raised in that first debate. when we saw in the second debate when the presidential candidate answered a question around pay equity, it shows us once again how the republican party fails to address the issues that are specifically important. >> that was not true. romney talked
for the independent voters that are generally favoring romney. when you start looking at individual issues the economy still looming large with a clear plurality among likely voters. although when you look at national security at the bottom it has edged up just a bit. this is the president handling the economy. approved are 45 percent disapproval of the majority. it is a tough number to head into reel lesh wi-- reelection . new unemployment numbers coming out tomorrow. >>> talk about that with cheryl co-teachers co-teachers -- co-teachersasoni in a littl. >> they told the obama administration and consulate could not with stand a coordinated attack. peter doocy is live with more on that. >>> good morning. >> good morning heather. 3 and a half weeks before the september 11th terrorist attacks on benghazi on august 159. the u.s. mission in benghazi held an emergency meeting and august 16th a secret table was sent to the state department that laid out the concerns our team on the ground had at the time. and top of the list was consulate security. the guards did not think they could protect the consulate.
"associated press" poll shows by 10-point margin, more voters trust romney to break the stalemate in washington than president. >> how about four more years of gridlock in washington? >> no! >> governor romney's wife ann campaigning alone joining him tomorrow for the final stretch. >> women have been coming up to me and saying please help. women. women are saying we're hurting, all the voices of the americans are out there that need help. the only thing i can tell them is help is on the way. >> three new races show tied in new hampshire where romney has vacation home, and wisconsin, paul ryan's home state and iowa where president leads by six. democrats warn it's closer than that. in colorado, romney has the edge. 50-47. within the rasmussen margin of error. even the ground game to get out the vote looks like a tossup. the latest pew research study says across the country obama campaign reached 11% of likely voters. only 10% for the romney campaign. look at the swing state. the romney campaign has an edge to reach 14% of likely voters, only 13 from the obama camp. >> bret: carl, t
to tell voters there that mitt romney had no intention of overturning roe versus wade even though mitt romney himself says he would do everything he could to overturn roe versus wade. he said if that happened be he would be delighted to sign a bill banning all abortion at the federal level. last week in ohio mr. romney made a mistake, an out and out gaffe. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >> not true. totally false. jeep is not doing that. the day mitt romney told that made-up horror story to ohio voters chrysler had already announced that actually they were expanding. in ohio and in michigan. they weren't pulling out. mitt romney responded to the instant fact checking not by taking it back but by turning that lie into a new ad for ohio. and then he bought extra air time for it in toledo, where ohio workers make jeeps and where being told falsely that your job's being shipped to china might be personally terrifying news. chrysler tried again to set mr. romney straigh
, president obama and mitt romney in a dead heat, 46%. when it comes to the key independent voters, romney and ryan have a 7 point edge over the president and vice president. will these swing voters make the big difference on tuesday? here for a fair and balanced debate, juan williams and andrea tan tar rose. we always know it comes down to the independents in most cases. is this good news for romney and ryan? >> i think it is. i think you want to win those independents and they can be determined, as you just said. what you have to look at also is how they've been swinging. you see president obama's team had a bump up in recent months in terms of the independents. but it still is an advantage for romney. >> gretchen: andrea? >> look at ohio, he's up six. virginia, up 21. florida, romney is up five. elections are won in the middle. barak obama had the same type of edge that romney can boast that he has now. remember, obama went on to win 54 to 44 john mccain. look, i think that's the most troubling number and i would point out by these new fox polls as well, it shows it's not just independe
mitt romney targeted young voters. >> the young voters need to recognize you will neat to vote for people who will finally tame the deficit and get america on track to a balanced budget . >> both candidate planned to hit all the swing states. romney's final rally is set for monday night in new hampshire >>> early voters are reporting some problems in north carolina and ohio. they say they chose mitt romney on the stuff screen but the machine automatically selected president obama instead. two counties recalibrated their machine. county officials say there are usually some kinks to work out but they believe that the problems have been set. >>> and we have a list of best and worst candies for your kids' teeth. >> you may have noticed some changes in the gas pump because of super storm sandy. number 5, gas stations will be allowed to sell lower quality gasoline instead of that cleaner burning gas required by the clean air act. that's because sandy could make it harder to distribute gasoline. the waiver is in effect in d.c., maryland, virginia and 12 other states >>> the belt which
drawing huge crowds, but the first lady and ann romney, their message to voters coming up. coming up. we had a good group of people. good group of employees out there. this was a booming place. and mitt romney and bain capital turned it in to a junk yard. i was suddenly, 60 years old. i had no health care. mainly i was thinking about my family. how am i going to take care of my family. he promised us the same things he's promising the united states. and he'll give you the same thing he gave us. nothing. anncr: priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. prand you're seeing that rightno quit in amnow.a... over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can,
american public policy. we called a romney voter in florida. and he said the reason he was for romney was because he didn't want medicare to change at all at any point. and that barack obama, in the long term, would abolish medicare. we said, well, what do you think about the premium support plan? he said if we change medicare, we should keep it exactly the same. we called an obama voter. and she said, well, you know, what i really liked about the president is he's not going to raise taxes on anyone. and when you look in the internals in these polls, you're seeing a lot of trust in people. and romney's been working very hard to come up more moderate on economics and say, look, i don't have the tax plan, a lot of the numbers appear that i have, and that is helping, but the specific policies people are voting for are -- they're intuitive intuitive. one thing we do in politics in washington is we say there's a clear and distinct agenda people are voting for. it's not happening from what we can tell. >> ezra klein, thank you very much. chuck todd, thank you as well. we'll see you on "the
picking tim kane for various reasons. some of these romney voters are more moderate republicans and the like tim kane better than his opponent. are there similar voters for obama and george allen? i am sure there are. i never met one of them. but i will say this -- george allen, despite what happened in 2006, he has won from time to time in running for statewide office 15% of the african- american vote. there would be a case in some precincts where you find some obama-allen voters. it will be interesting to see what the ticket-splitting pattern is. i can clearly see and most observers have come across the same thing, i can clearly see a band of voters who vote for mitt romney who also would for tim kaine. host: finally a tweet -- guest: it is a major force in the republican party. they strongly support people like our current attorney general ken cuccinelli. a major force in the republican party. they could easily dominate any republican convention. we've got a convention picking the republican nominee for governor, lieutenant governor, an attorney general to be held next spring
be re-elected and why voters should not give mitt romney a chance, suzanne. >> let's talk a little bit about the sprint to the finish here, briana, because i imagine you'll be doing an auchl lot of traveling here. the president who will be campaigning today, of course, at nevada and colorado following this event. tomorrow he is in ohio. the weekend unbelievable the schedule here. we are talking about a blitz across seven battleground states. do we expect that the message is going to change? what is going to be the closing argument we're going hear from this president? >> you know, i think it is -- it isn't really just -- this to me, this event here, is really the kickoff to the final push. changed a little bit, obviously, because of storm sandy, but this became the kickoff, the final push. by my count he has 17 stops through monday before election day. who knows? more could be added. that may change. this is the first of 17, and when you look at it, more than half of those stops are going to be where? yes, ohio, but also here in wisconsin and iowa. this kind of midwest firewall as some
trail, romney toned down his criticism of the president, coping his message positive as he tries to win over florida voters. >> washington has to begin to come together. >> reporter: accompanied by the state's popular former governor jeb bush, romney emphasized his own record as massachusetts governor of bipartisanship. >> it was not lost on me to get anything done at all, and even to have my veto upheld, i need to have people across the aisle that i could work with. >> remember the president talked about romneysia? well it's contagious. congressman ryan's caught it. >> reporter: vice president joe biden accused the romney campaign of lying in a new ad in ohio that implies the auto bailout is sending american jobs overseas. >> why would they do this in the face of the overwhelming fact -- >> reporter: paul ryan said the ad was try troou. >> those stats are inconvenient for the president but no one disputes them. >> reporter: and ryan fought back hard. >> president obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. taxpayers still stand to lose billion billions of dollars from the president's m
, maybe mitt romney thinks that only voters are watching and not fact checkers, but, you know, the fact that he has refused to answer where he is on all of these issues, the fact that during the debates, he essentially hid his true positions, for example, he also is denying that he would turn medicare into a voucher system. he denies that he has a $5 trillion tax cut plan, skewed towards the wealthy, that would increase taxes on the middle class. it comes down to, who do you trust? >> well, he just won't answer any -- >> and president obama has consistently been there. >> no doubt. now, with this storm, and the aftermath, you think voters will react to romney's theme of flip-flop? is this a major issue for him right now, where it would affect voters? >> well, you know, i think there's a very clear example here, where you have the president, you know, making sure that we put first things first, you lay politics aside, and both as the storm was approaching and in the aftermath of the storm, that as commander in chief, he's protecting the americans who are in harm's way. and making sure th
voters will react to romney's theme of flip-flop? is this a major issue for him right now, where it would affect voters? >> well, you know, i think there's a very clear example here, where you have the president, you know, making sure that we put first things first, you lay politics aside, and both as the storm was approaching and in the aftermath of the storm, that as commander in chief, he's protecting the americans who are in harm's way. and making sure that we can get things cleaned up and get them -- their needs taken care of -- >> but, i mean, mitt romney has talking about privatizing this part of the government. this has been his philosophy. >> yes, and as a floridian, that's very disturbing. i can tell you that because six months of the year in florida, we are in harm's way, potentially, during hurricane season. you know, that idea that mitt romney, during the primaries, in answer to a point-blank question from john king, about whether or not we should get rid of fema and send this responsibilities to the states, he said, yes, and then even better, you could go further and privati
and governor romney is dead even. latest fox news poll of likely voters showing president obama and governor romney are tied at 46%. today the battleground states becoming a battlefield. >> president obama has seen a once steady lead in michigan decline two points. michigan is in toss-up status. the poll is from the detroit news. it finds obama leading romney 47-45%. that is the second poll in the week that has shown a tight race in michigan. >> it's not too late to turn this around. we can save medicare and social security. we can cut spending to get this budget balanced and pay off this debt. we can get people out of poverty and back to the middle-class. we can get america back on the right track and give our kids a debt free future. >> so ask yourself, who do you trust to be straight with you, to level with you. who do you trust to stand up for the middle-class and measuring? ladies and gentlemen, we are not. these guys, we are not in decline. they are in denial. >> you got fundamentals in this race. one of the fundamentals is the economy is horrible. you have the tea party that arisen si
way for the romney campaign. a lot of voters i've spoken to, they've heard about the ad, they've seen it and understand it's an attempt to muddy the waters and play fast and loose with the facts. that's not helping the romney campaign. voters i've spoken to say he didn't need to do this. why did he do this late in the game? we also spoke to ohio senators, rob portman and sherrod brown about the ad. and here's what they said, carol. >> i say it's the most disingenuous ad i've seen. they know better. they know the auto rescue worked. they understand that 800,000 ohioans are connected directly or indirectly to the auto rescue. they know that governor romney and my opponent's proposition to the auto rescue -- they're trying to cloud the issue. and it's pretty outrageous. >> it's fair game to the extent it's reported in the media, and that's all he said, there have been reports this could happen. the bigger issue for me, who has the best policies to be sure we can continue to manufacture here in america. >> reporter: so both campaigns -- surrogates fighting over this ad. but the squabbling
is, well, look at the polls, they say. if you look closely among independent voters, romney actually has a big, really big, advantage over obama, double digits in a lot of these polls. and they're saying so there's a mistake in these polls. there's too many democrats and we're all in for a big surprise tuesday. i think that's knocked down by the fact that independents are a broad and seemingly confused term, a lot of people that used to call themselves republicans to pollsters have simply calling themselves independents, but they still act and vote like republicans. so if the independent thing isn't what republicans say it is, from your view, what is the best argument at this point for romney suddenly getting that extra push over the last four, five days of this race and winning next tuesday? what's the strongest argument you've heard? >> well, i don't think there is a good argument for him getting a kind of issue push, a kind of free media narrative push. i think at this point, it's that the turnout assumptions that a lot of pollsters are making are wrong. and that republican -- opt
